18th Birthday

I have made quite a few cards in his type of style this week.  Most had bows in the centre above the glass charm-ring but Than I decided to used the trimmings and found it makes for a much neater finish.  The embosed background is made with a Tattered Lace folder.

Hessian Bunting

Following on from the theme of yesterday’s wedding cad, I have made some hessian bunting of the tye draped over a card-collection basket at a celebration.  It also has a dual purpose as it is currently displayed in above my cards n the shop where I sell them.  The ruffle is from Papermania and the letters are cut from self-adhesive felt used Sizzix dies.

Creative Moments Challenge – Autumn colours

The new challenge at Creative Moments is sponsored by Deedee’s Digi designs and Lacy Sunshine.  I have used a digistamp from Deedee’s which is a bible verse and comes as part of a set.  The verse was printed in a green-grey colour and was assembled into a 5 x 7 card using stash which is part of the Papermania Capsule range in Eau de Nil and Blush.  I ran a piece of plain white card through a Tatterted lace embossing folder to make the background.

As always the Creative Moments challenge is follow the theme or anything goes so I cose a soft colour palatte that could be used a new baby card, a congratulations or for other occasions.

Picture in a box frame

Today’s make is a commissioned piece.  I bought a deep box frame and cut butterfiles from a scrap of wallpaper using Spellbinders.  The letters are cut using Sizzix “Monde de Blonde” and the numbers are cut using Tonic dies.  I used Promarkers to enhance the colours so that the letters, numbers and some parts of butterfly would stand out against the patterned backing paper – also wallpaper scraps.
